Simulation

 

The NMCI boasts one of the largest simulation suites in Europe if not the world. This compromises of the following Kongsberg Simulators:

 

 

 

360° full-mission bridge simulator 270° full-mission bridge simulator

 

 

 

• 360° full-mission bridge simulator

 

• 270° full-mission bridge simulator

 

• 3 x auxiliary 150° bridge simulators

 

• 12 x NARAS-O/Fleet work simulators

 

• Vessel Traffic System simulator at 3 control positions

 

• 6 Bridge ECDIS Suite

 

 

 

 

 

Simulation Courses

 

We deliver bespoke courses which are tailored to individual clients needs because we recognise that each client is different. We primarily utilise our 360° full mission bridge to provide, amongst others, specialised ship handling courses. These include;

 

• Pilot Training

 

• Ship Specific training

 

• Propulsion Specific Training

 

• Port Specific training

 

 

 

Specialised Operations such as; 

 

• Ship to Ship Transfer

 

• Replenishment at Sea for Seismic Industry

 

 

Our in-house capabilities in visual & hydrodynamic modelling means there is no limit with regard to vessels or ports that can be simulated.

 

In addition to enhancing these courses, the modelling capabilities allow us to offer the facilities for manoeuvring and port development studies.

 

Our extensive expertise in simulation allows us to also offer consultancy services in all aspects of simulation; design, purchase, and installation, together with course preparation and delivery.

 

We also deliver approved courses such as;

 

• ECDIS Operator Electronic Chart Display

 

• Nautical Knowledge Weeks

 

• VTS- V-103/1 VTS Operator -Simulation

 

• VTS- V-103/1Operator Underpinning Knowledge

 

• 2 day Kongsberg Type Specific Training

 

 

 

We are constantly developing new courses as well.

 

Our suite of bridges is enhanced and complimented by extensive engine and cargo simulation.

 

• Full mission Engine Room simulator with low and high speed diesel engine models

 

• 20 student workstations for Engine Room systems simulations

 

• Liquid cargo handling and damage control simulators at 10 student workstations

 

They allow us to offer combined simulator exercises, in addition to the process training that the engine and cargo simulators are suited for.

A First for NMCI Simulation – Our Bridge Simulator

Posted: October 14, 2011

During the first week of October the National Maritime College of Ireland’s Simulation unit provided its first course for a group of Brazilian customers.

Following an initial enquiry (from Mr. Diogo Weberszpil do Amaral) for a ship handling course, the Simulation unit’s Captain Clive Hotham created a specialised course, to be run in the units’ 360° full mission bridge simulator, to provide the practical training that the group required.

The group consisted of four people, Mr. Diogo Weberpilz, Mr Eliel de Andrade, Mr. Fabio Sousa de Oliveira, Mr. Diogo Nery Monteiro, and all of whom are candidates in the current round of recruitment of Trainee Pilots for Brazilian Ports.

The week consisted of lectures on ship handling theory, practical ship handling of different vessels in different situations, practical communications between ships and port control, and debriefing sessions to discuss how each practical session went.

In the practical sessions each person was given a particular role – Pilot, Captain, Officer, and Helmsman – to reinforce the need for team work on a ships bridge. This meant that each person performed the manoeuvres and when they were not acting as pilot could observe each other’s performance.

As the week progressed the abilities of the group improved greatly, each person gaining more confidence with each exercise.

The week was a success and the feedback from the group was very positive. All the lecturers involved (Captains: Clive Hotham, Peter Walter, Cormac MacSweeney, and Roddy Cook) enjoyed working with the group during the week.

The NMCI Simulation unit is looking forward to the next group of Brazilian customers in December and beyond.

It is hoped that the Simulation unit can provide further training for more Brazilian customers; for courses ranging from this, to specialised courses for experienced pilots, and manoeuvring studies for pilots and ports.
